I like the last two also, especially #2. Not sure on #1. I've looked at it without the sky, and looked at it with less foreground. Just can't make my mind up.

I think if I had taken shot 1 I would crop it quite a bit. For me the good thing with this shot js the light on the rails around the loco. I feel that the sky could be cropped out - even to the underside of the bridge arch. The white signal post on the right distracts the eye so could also be cropped out. You could even crop the left side so that the rails of the loop start a diagonal from that corner. I would not crop the foreground as I think that the vee at the bottom of the frame pulls the rails of the loop together as a whole.

Sorry if I have cut out rather a lot there - feel free to disagree as I am really a newbie here!

Its good to see these Barrie. That was a cold day but all the pictures that came out of it were worth it. Sorry you weren't able to be at the print viewing session from this assignment, we missed seeing your pictures that night.
My favoreuite of these three is #2, great detail.
Best wishes for your continued recovery, and pass my regards on to Maragret as well.

I think 2 is excellent. A great composition, and certainly a good call to have it in black and white. Well done.

Number 2 is great, well suited to black and white.

Thanks for the comments people. #1 was taken because of the shining, diverging rails but a few suggestions on how to crop it have been put forward.







Any more thoughts?
